The taxonomic identities of populations of Philander Brisson of Argentina are still unclear. Philander frenatus (Olfers) isthe only species assigned to the country, a conclusion based on incomplete analysis of available material and without aclear taxonomic criterion. The aim of this study was to determine the taxonomic identity of the populations of Philander of Argentina. To accomplish this, DNA from eight specimens from Argentina and one specimen from Paraguay wassequenced and compared with… 
A Revision of Philander (Marsupialia: Didelphidae), Part 1: P. quica, P. canus, and a New Species from Amazonia
TLDR
This is the first installment of a revision of the didelphid marsupial genus Philander, commonly known as gray four-eyed opossums, and designate a neotype for the long-problematic nominal taxon Didelphis superciliaris Olfers, 1818, and establish that Olfer's coeval binomen D. frenata is based on an eastern Amazonian type and is a junior synonym of P. opossum.
A new species of lutrine opossum, genus Lutreolina Thomas (Didelphidae), from the South American Yungas
TLDR
A new species of lutrine opossum is named and described to encompass populations from the Yungas forests of northwestern Argentina and southern Bolivia, a very different environment from those inhabited by Lutreolina elsewhere (i.e., lowland savannah grasslands).
Additions to the Paraguayan mammal fauna: the first records of two marsupials (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae) with comments on the alpha taxonomy of Cryptonanus and Philander
TLDR
Two new species of marsupials are added to the fauna of Paraguay, Philander opossum and Cryptonanus unduaviensis, which improve the understanding of both species in South America.
A new species of arboreal rat, genus Oecomys (Rodentia, Cricetidae) from Chaco
TLDR
A new species of rodent is added to the highly diverse genus Oecomys based on specimens collected in the Argentinian provinces of Chaco and Formosa, characterized by a derived carotid circulatory pattern.
HOW MANY SPECIES OF GREY FOXES (CANIDAE, CARNIVORA) ARE THERE IN SOUTHERN SOUTH AMERICA?
TLDR
The results indicate that there are two clades, that are not sister taxa, a finding that is more congruent with the hypothesis of two species, but their geographic distribution is not coincident with the accepted distribution of L. griseus and L. gymnocercus.
A comprehensive overview of the genetic diversity in Thylamys elegans (Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae): establishing the phylogeographic determinants
TLDR
The genetic diversity and biogeographic history of Thylamys elegans was shaped by mountain glaciers, changes in river water levels during the Pleistocene glaciations and hyperaridity, promoting the differentiation and persistance of the T. elegans lineages.
Phylogeny and evolution of body mass in didelphid marsupials (Marsupialia: Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae)
TLDR
A fully resolved, highly robust phylogeny of didelphids is recovered that tested and confirmed most previously reported groupings, providing a simultaneous depiction of phylogenetic relationships for 81 % of currently recognized species and all relevant supra-specific clades.
